This is my 3485734895 start down this road. I know I can do it, I was in one-derland and loving it but I got laid off and went through a pretty low point in my life and slowly over the past 3 years I have put back on each and every pound i fought so hard to lose. Now I am not back in the horrible shape I was in when I originally started my trip to one-derland, I can still do some things (like real pushups, not girly ones) and have muscle strength/tone from before....though it is nothing like I used to have. I worked really hard back then and had a trainer help me along the way, however I just can't afford that at this time but I know that for the sake of my health and my family life I need to get back into a shape that is not round. I am looking for someone that I can buddy up with that has similar amount of weight to lose and similar goals as myself.

I want to lose weight, first and foremost, so I can be a healthy mom and enjoy a long life with my kids and husband. I also want to look good, I do not like the way I look and while my husband and children love me just the way I am I'm not happy with the way I look. I live in Santa Rosa Beach so I know I am a bit far out for a lot of people, I don't need someone who physically is here but I do need someone that can virtually be here to help push me and I will in turn help push you. Daily texts/emails about progress, weekly picture weigh ins to keep us accountable and other ways to get in touch with one another. I know I can do it and I know you can too, having someone there to help push you and hold you accountable makes it work that much better. I have done this before virtually but that person had a significantly smaller amount of weight to lose than I did (15lbs vs 70lbs) and they eventually just dropped off and stopped working out.

So If anyone is interested in going this journey with me send me a message and lets get this thing started!

Looking for a workout/weight loss buddy to help keep up accountability with daily texts and emails about how we are doing that day...Send me a message if you are interested!

I live in Perdido Key (West Pensacola), but I workout every Tues. & Thurs. at 6:30 p.m. with the Pensacola Fit Club at the FilAm Community center near Pensacola Blvd. (Interested? Message me! :) ) It's always free.

I enjoy walking/jogging; however, I cannot run outside without developing runner's' asthma. I'm working on it. :(
I also enjoy doing Beach Body fitness programs at home.

This Saturday, February 2, 2013, I plan to walk down Johnson's Beach Rd. into the Gulf Islands National Seashore"s Johnson's Beach at 11 p.m. If anybody would care to join me, let me know! We could start at The Reef bar and go from there. Just message me. :)

Hi! I live in Navarre. I'd love to find someone that wanted to meet once or twice a week to work out. I'm game for anything but walking. Walking doesn't do much for me.
Crossfit, interval training, running, lifting weights, kettle bell training, swimming, water aerobics, zumba.. I'm a member at the YMCA here in Navarre and I can sign people onto base to workout. I am looking for someone anytime on Monday or in the evenings Tuesdays through Thursday. I will workout on my own if needed, but I'd love to have the extra push of meeting someone to do it once a week.

have you found a work out buddy, because I am in desperate need of someone to keep me motivated, I do not drive due to lack of transport, hubby and I share one vehicle! I live off of Avalon at this time. I am very driven to loose this UN-wanted weight and though hubby says he supports me he is the first to bring home the ice cream!

Hey everybody! I live near NAS in Pensacola and am looking for a workout/walking buddy. Ido not drive and do not have my own transportation. I am legally blind but can see shapes as well as things up close (Macular Degeneration) So would need someone who lives close or is willing to come to me. Also, if you have a membership to the Pensacola Fitness Club on Hwy 98 we could work out there together . Please, I really need a workout buddy.

Does anybody go to Reel Time Fitness? I live close to it and was wondering about the wait time for machines. emoticon

I have learned that I must love myself where I am at rather than some unattainable concept placed in my head by distorted media social norms. And guess what? I kinda like who I am.

Hey everyone,
I'm 24 and a mother of 3, but I stay at home so I am flexible with my schedule. I live in Milton, but don't necessarily mind traveling. I'm very out of shape and have only just started out, so low impact activities and things that are easier are better for me, but I'm interested in trying everything. I definitely need someone to help motivate me, so I hope to hear from someone!

Morning all: I'm 60ish and beginning to feel it because I've just reached a huge maximum weight. I can't stand it anymore and I know I have to get out and busy. I live near Bayview Park in East Hill Area and I want to get out and walk and swim and get active. I'm friendly and fun as a rule so I'd be a good but slow walking partner in the beginning if someone would take a chance on me. I work sitting Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5p.m. and I've got to pick up the pace on my off hours. If you can do it, let me know! Thanks. Mist

Hey! I am a 30 year old mom of two looking for a buddy to walk/run/wii with pretty much whenever as I work for myself so I can be flexible. I need someone to really kick my butt though - I let myself off the hook WAY too much, and I need a "drill sergeant" of sorts. I can be one for you as well - I just struggle with commending myself. Looking for someone who wants to really make a life change - even when it sucks - but who will stay committed for the long haul. Let's do this ladies!!

JISTY06 and DAP1313...we all should get together. We all live on the same side of town. If we do it in three, we won't get discouraged if one of us can't make it.

My name is Jennifer. I am 21 years old. I only work 2 days a week babysitting (Monday&Tuesday). So any days other than those work for me. I can run, walk, do workout dvds. I can also get on to lots of nice trails and such on base. I am looking for a buddy who doesnt mind that I bring my daughter with me. The jogging stroller has become my best friend. =) I may be unreliable at times since I cant control my daughters sicknesses or my husband's work schedules and such. But I will do my best at all time. I live on the West side of Pensacola, about 5 miles from NAS

Jennifer =)

31yrs old. Mother of a 7 month old.

I have rheumatoid arthritis, so walking is best for me. Anytime Mon-Sat. Someone who doesn't mind if I have my son with me in a stroller and if plans have to change from time to time because of a fussy baby.

I live off of Muldoon Rd near Blue Angel Prkway. West side of Pensacola.

thanks!
Brandi

Hi everyone!

When I first posted this I could walk early, but right now it would be impossible. I am hoping that when the weather cools down later in the year I can start walking outside.

Great Idea Carole.
I live in Gulf Breeze, Tiger Point area, but willing to travel within reason.

I am 53 years old.

My favorite workouts are: tennis (advanced beginner), walking/hiking-perhaps mixed with a very little jogging-I am trying C25K if my knees hold up, tae bo/turbojam or other exercise videos, roller skating, and I love to dance. I am also especially in need of someone to do resistance training with me-can't afford a gym right now and I really dislike this type of training, I have plenty of hand weights, exercise bands, exercise ball, etc, but still find it hard to make myself work out even twice a week, while I am usually getting in all my aerobics.

My schedule is unfortunately variable every week, so I can't say every tues/thursday or anything like that as my days off vary, but some is better than none. Best time of day depends on the temperature. During the week it is best from 9am to 7pm.

Looking forward to hearing from any buddies who may be lurking out there.

TREASURE EACH MOMENT
MY WEIGHT IS NOT WHO I AM.

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BE WHO YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.

We all know this journey is easier when you don't have to go it alone. Let's use this thread for our team members to search for, and hopefully find, a workout buddy.

If you are interested...answer the following questions.

Your age -
General living location - (i.e. Pace, Gulf Breeze, West Pensacola)
Workout preference - (i.e. walking, running, bicycling, workout videos, gym)
Best times/days of week for you to workout -

Maybe someone will come along and find you!
